Well, here we are, the last day of 2013! Can you believe that it’s over? I think that the year just flew by. It seems like just yesterday I was at Convention. And now in a little over a week, I’ll be leaving for Leadership. Amazing just how fast things move. Hopefully it’s warmer in Texas than it is here because it was freezing today and it’s supposed to be 12 degrees on Friday! Brrrr!
For my last post of the year I have my card for the SUO Challenge. This time we ask you to create a card using January colors…
When I think of January, I think of cold, so I used blues and some snowflakes for my card. The base of my card is Island Indigo. For the background I used a piece of the Winter Frost Specialty Designer Series Paper. Another piece of Designer Series Paper backed with a piece of Island Indigo is on top of that. A banner of the Silver Foil Sheet goes across that and my flag is cut out from a piece of Bermuda Bay with the Banners Framelits Dies* and embossed with the Northern Flurry Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. Two more pieces of the Winter Frost Specialty Designer Series Paper are cut out with the Festive Flurry Framelits and adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. My greeting is from the Bring on the Cake Stamp Set, is stamped in Island Indigo and cut out with the Word Bubble Framelits*. How’s that for a festive, chilly birthday card?! If you’ll notice, I didn’t tell you what the name of the Designer Series Paper that is backed with Island Indigo is called. Let’s play a fun little game! Let’s see how many of you can tell me what it’s called. From all of you that answer correctly, I will select one random person and send them a little surprise. No cheating and reading the other comments. LOL! I hope you enjoyed my SUO Challenges card this time around. Head on over to the blog to see what the other designers have come up and don’t forget to enter your card in the gallery so we can see your take on the challenge! Have a great day, and we’ll see you back here next year! Woo hoo!!
Oh, and don’t forget that if you want any of the Winter Frost Designer Series Paper or Winter Frost Designer Series Paper Stack you only have three days left to order it before it’s gone! 🙂
